Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition was revealed last year and now it returns for 2014. The vehicle will add an advanced all-wheel-drive (AWD) system along with unique signature exterior appointments, and an interior in dark colors and high-quality materials, all designed in John Varvatos’ style.
The model sports unique Phantom Black tri-coat exterior paint and discrete metallic finishes inside and out. Its exterior paint resembles the black with Titanium-finish of John Varvatos’ cologne bottle. In addition, this limited edition Chrysler has a Titanium-finished grille surround, Titanium Chrome Chrysler “wing” badge and Black Chrome grille blades.
The front fascia integrates larger air inlets and includes Black Chrome grille blades and Titanium-finished accents. The 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels complement the aggressive exterior styling. The car is equipped with 19-inch when it features an all-wheel drive (AWD) system.
What is more, day light opening surrounds and mirror caps finished in Titanium further add to the luxury stance of the model. At the rear one can find LED taillamps with blackened detail, dual-exhaust tips in titanium, and John Varvatos and Chrysler wing deck-lid badges finished in Titanium Chrome.
Inside, the car features premium materials and exclusive design elements. John Varvatos’ logos are debossed on unique Pewter Metallic leather seats. The latter were tailored with unique Diesel Gray and black pattern Varvatos stitching. A specially designed gauge cluster and clock with Pearlescent White face and Charcoal Black Metallic bezels are other highlights to be found in the cabin.
Precisely, the interior is wrapped with exotic Poltrona Frau black leather with Diesel Gray accent stitching, while the heated steering wheel is finished with Diesel Gray thread and Titanium Chrome accents and includes hand-stitching. Completing the Chrysler 300C Varvatos Limited Edition’s interior are Titanium, unique Charcoal Hydrographic Wood and Gloss Black finished interior accents.
